HomeLight’s platform makes real estate transactions simple, certain and satisfying

Over the past year, HomeLight expanded its offerings from its core agent matching platform to a full suite of options

HomeLight aims to provide the top agents in the United States with innovative services in real estate that allow them to provide exceptional service for their customers. HomeLight is tackling friction points at each stage of the real estate transaction, using technology that empowers real estate agents to deliver optimal outcomes and enables consumers to make smarter decisions about one of the biggest financial decisions of their lifetime.

Buying and selling a house can be difficult. There’s an opportunity to improve at every turn, but there is no silver bullet. That’s why HomeLight aims to develop the transaction of the future by combining services that help real estate agents better meet their clients’ needs – from getting a mortgage to the final closing stages – all under one roof.

The HomeLight platform makes transactions flow smoothly from one step to the next: from connecting real estate agents to consumers, to getting the best mortgage, ensuring that the closing is on-time and easy.

In 2019, HomeLight expanded its offerings from its core agent matching platform to a full suite of options.

HomeLight launched its Closing Services division in January, providing best-in-class title and escrow services to agents and home sellers.

In February, the company announced the Simple Sale product, designed to match sellers with hundreds of iBuyers across the U.S. Sellers can receive a cash offer on their home in two minutes.

In July, HomeLight acquired digital mortgage company Eave, Inc. and launched HomeLight Home Loans, allowing buyers certainty by providing full upfront financial underwriting in 24 hours and guaranteed 21-day closing.

“At HomeLight, we believe in the real estate agent. We believe that the best real estate transactions are simple, certain and satisfying.

“We know that when real estate agents and customers use technology in new ways, it can unlock superpowers for customers and agents and change the process of buying and selling homes in ways others never thought possible,” said Drew Uher, CEO and founder of HomeLight.

“Our over 425,000 happy clients appreciate our commitment to delivering a home-buying or selling experience that puts them in the driver’s seat,” Uher said. “Real estate agents value our ability to connect them with the clients, products, and services that drive their business. Whether a client needs the perfect real estate agent for their needs, a cash deal rather than a traditional marketing process, or a lender that delivers a mortgage quickly and painlessly, selling starts at HomeLight.”

HomeLight is working to move the needle toward a drastically improved buying and selling experience for more consumers that is faster than any single-solution digital mortgage, iBuyer, or eClosing business.

With almost 200 employees nationwide, a highly experienced team of engineers, a product team focused on the consumer and a leadership team driven by a shared vision for the future of real estate, HomeLight aims to become the go-to place for buying or selling a home.
